Russia is setting up military manuevers, in Venzuela, no less. Their military aircraft are on there way, though I have seen reports of 2 ‘super planes’ already there.
And they will do naval training too:
Bolivia expelled our ambassador on the 11th
chavez expelled our ambassador on the 12th
We returned the favor on the same day, accusing him of being heavily involved with the drug trade in Columbia.
It is indeed a mess, and it is right on our own doorstep close to an area already plagued by disasters.
So why aren’t either of our presidential candidates talking about this? It happened prior to the Wall Street Crisis!
